Interesting comments from Bischoff…
Wrestling legend, Eric Bischoff has discussed the possibility of CM Punk returning to WWE on his Strictly Business podcast. During the discussion, Bischoff claimed that a WWE could return could be good for both sides (Punk and WWE):
“The culture in WWE, I don’t think, is going to be such or is such that he’s burned too many bridges and there’s no way. I don’t believe that at all. I believe it’s all up to Phil Brooks and how honest he’s capable of being with himself. And what his goals are. He may have enough money in the bank after this last run to not give a f***. It could be really good. It could be great for WWE. It could be great for him if he’s willing to do that. If he’s not, then he’s just going to fade away and be a ‘cult’ wrestling star and nobody will remember him 10 years from now.”
“However, if Phil can realize that he’s much like anybody that’s got a bad habit, eventually if you’ve got a bad habit that’s holding you back from being more successful, then you’ve gotta fix that bad habit.If Phil can do that and sit down and have an honest conversation with Paul Levesque — Paul Levesque’s a smart dude. I think if Paul Levesque were to truly believe Phil Brooks, then I think there’s a shot. The situation, the environment would be a lot different in WWE than it was in AEW.”
